Beauty Muse Fleur East

Fleur East

The woman of the moment, Fleur East is the Beauty Muse of the week. I am a huge fan of this beautiful young woman, I am so proud of all she has achieved in just a year. Her hit track ‘SAX’, is my current favourite party jam, I mean, that song can get anyone moving. Her voluminous hair, golden skin, beautiful smile, amazing voice and killer dance moves have kept us glued to her, and today, I am writing all about Fleur East’s beautiful features, and some of her beauty secrets, so keep reading.

Fleur’s big hair is one of the first things you notice about her. I love it on her so much. I was madly in love with the big hair earlier this year as you may have noticed, but I have kind of gotten over it. However, I still love seeing it on Fleur, It suits her face so much and she knows how to rock it. She kind of reminds me of a young Tina Turner, so she better keep the fro, it has become a trademark. She tried the straight hair look some months ago, but I didn’t like it. Thank God, she got the clue and went back to the fro.

Another feature of Fleur I admire, is her flawless golden skin. It is simply perfect. Her makeup is always spot on as well, and I love a red lipstick on her a lot.

Here are some of her beauty secrets:

“Taking my makeup off and cleansing, exercise and healthy eating.”

“I love the TRESemmé Oil Elixir – it works wonders for defining the curls and eliminating the frizz! I use the TRESemmé 24 Hour Plumping Powder all the time too, it makes my hair huge.”

“I take care of my figure by going to the gym and working hard! I love doing classes like spinning, I run on the treadmill, do weights, squats…I work the whole body. I eat healthily too.”

I do all of the above except eating healthy and working out. I eat healthy but I also not eat heathy some times if that makes any sense. I really need to watch what goes in my mouth. I also really do not have time to do any form of exercise, except if you consider caring for very fussy 2 two-year olds, 24/7 a form of exercise? I think it is.

What do you think of Fleur East as a Beauty Muse? Any thoughts? Sound off in the comment section.

Thanks for reading.

My Expedia World on a Plate

Bulgarian Dish

I have been busy thinking and dreaming of various Bulgarian Recipes, trying to think of at least 1 great, tasty Bulgarian dish to blog about, and guess what? I found TWO, yayyy.

The people of Expedia got in touch, and challenged me to get involved in their World on a Plate challenge, which is simply, creating a Bulgarian meal from scratch and sharing with you guys. I have never been to Bulgaria, and I am not a food blogger, but I always up for a challenge, and if you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a while, you should know that by now. Remember my last food challenge with Travelodge, I am always eager to do something new, so here I am, going ahead with this World on a Plate challenge.

I was sent a HUGE hamper filled up with Bulgarian goodies; Bulgarian cheese, yoghurt, pork, meat, wine, biscuits, pasta, tea, semolina, name it, I received it.I also received a Voucher to cover the costs of anything else I might need to cook up the dish. Armed with the food stuffs, voucher and some extensive research (took me weeks to finally decide on what to make), I decided to go for two recipes, Meatballs in rich tomato sauce also known as Kyufteta po Chirpanski, and Semolina Porridge with fruit.

 

Semolina porridge with fruit

I choose this recipe because it is fast, easy, and does not require a lot of ingredients. I wanted something a bit plain, for the kids to enjoy so I thought this would be a great option. I also wanted a quick dish, and this was done in under 30 minutes.

Semolina with Fruit

 

I found this dish very different but tasty. It is completely different from porridges I am used to, but I liked it, and the kids loved it as well. It is a great dish to offer children from 6 months, and I had fun playing around with this recipe, so a win-win.

 

Meatballs in rich tomato sauce

I wanted to incorporate some meatballs into the second recipe. Meatballs dishes are Bulgarian classics, they are amongst the most popular Bulgarian recipes, so I decided to go for the famous Meatballs in rich tomato sauce.

We enjoyed this Meatballs in Tomato Sauce with some Bulgarian pasta, but you can also have it with rice, semolina or bread.

Taking part in this challenge opened my eyes to yummy world of the Bulgarian cuisines, and I will be playing around with the rest of the goodies over the Christmas holidays.
